Reformat node presets for the most common resolutions out there
6.3 or later
25 Aug 2011

This implements preset for the Reformat node for many of the most common film and digital camera values.  I also gave nice labels to match the format inside but it still shows the resolution on the node which is nice.

Yes you can do this with nuke.addFormat, but you can't nest them and when the list gets big it kind of gets annoying and goes off screen.  So this is just an alternative.




Install Instructions:
1. copy the file into your .nuke folder or anywhere in your NUKE_PATH 
2. in your or put the following code:

import reformat_presets

It uses Nuke 6.3's new node presets and will not work with older versions.  If you have additional camera values you would like added let me know.  There are still some missing ones that would be useful like weisscam and viper.  If you have these values offhand then post them in the comments and I will add them.

#just a note this is the first pass on it.  I will probably refine it more next week.

Thanks again Deke. F
FYI you have a comma in the "UHDTV/4320p 16:9" format for box width
'box_width': '7,680' which causes it to fail.

Adding the "reformat_prese ts.nodePresetRe format()" command to your will break opening Nuke 6.2 or earlier.

If you still use both Nuke 6.2 and 6.3, you can create this entry in your instead to solve the problem.
if ( nuke.NUKE_VERSI ON_MAJOR >= 6) and ( nuke.NUKE_VERSI ON_MINOR >= 3 ):

I added your code my and added your presets file but my reformat looks the same. Is there something else I need to do in order to enable it? (I removed the comma from the UHDTV setting also)

BTW, Thanks for going through all these cameras for us.

thanks sot lots

These are based around motion camera formats. I don't really see a point in adding still camera formats.
